Crochet loops of beads into quick-and-easy jewelry

Adele Frank and Keiko Seki

While the origin of this variation of bead crochet is unclear, Adele Rogers Recklies calls it Turkish Loops because she learned it from a Turkish beader in 2007 while in Turkey for the International Bead and Beadwork Conference. The technique, also known as perlen crochet or jewelry crochet, has appeared in Japan, Germany, and Austria, among other places. Regardless of the origin, it is an easy-to-learn variation on a technique that sometimes makes beginners want to cry in frustration. Try the two-loop bracelet first to get the hang of the technique. Next, move on to the three-loop bracelet and the necklace. After that, work out your own variations, and let us know how they come out!
